  2. It's Tuesday which means it's Wrapup day so let's get into it: Primary Announcement: There are rules and there are important rules. This is an update for the latter. Oh just kidding it's the update itself OF the rules that's important. Either way, you must read this and abide to it. IMPORTANT RULE UPDATE. COMMUNITY EVENTS Edward's Trinity Events How does this community stay so active with so many Events you ask? Oh wait.. You didn't ask that? Oh, well I was going to say it's because not only do we have an outstanding Promotions and Events team, GiG, but other members who take it upon themselves, such as Edward here from our News Group, to entertain the masses! But since you didn't ask I guess I won't say any of that. Edward Kenway's first Event of the Trinity will be April 6th and it will be played on Mass Effect 3. OLD VS. NEW What is there to say about this... other than it was AWESOME! Good luck next time new members! .. No I'm kidding, for those of you who did not get to attend, the old members did win some games but the new members won the majority. It was a pretty tough butt whooping some games but all in all we had loads of fun especially playing CTF when F1ZM splattered his own team on the Ghost a bunch, playing Volleyball, and getting a chance to play Charles Stoot's Floor Runner mini game which can be located below. Great job new members but don't think this is over. Not by a long shot.

Just thought I'd throw you guys a fun Featured Interview section while new interviews are being made. FORGE Featured Map This is truly a mini game you have to see to believe. Inspired by Floor Masters from Halo: Reach, Charles Stoot created his own adaptation of the way this game works and made it into an astounding Ricochet mini game. This is Stoot's Floor Runner [ball]. Here's a short description of how it works: one team is on offense and plays Ricochet like normal.. Except that the ground beneath keeps going missing. Why? Because the guys on the grid above them who are on defense have trait zones that follow them and the effect of the zone deletes the piece under them temporarily. I don't quite know how to explain it all in Forge terms. Highly advised that you click above for his submission containing a download link.

  8. Hello 343iCF and welcomed guests thanks for tuning in this week, there's a lot to cover so let's get into it: Primary Announcement: TWINREAPER - According to my calculations, this is about 227% Twinreaper. These are rough calculations of course. COMMUNITY EVENTS Jason's Alive Friday the 13th Community Event Friday the 13th, Cooliest hosted a spooky Community Event. It had a nice turnout! Participants: Sparky Zaguroth BeckoningZebra Self Destruct ShadowFiend Twinreaper HaloGeek GSD Bnus and Rue The MVPs of the Event were our boys Sparky and Self Destruct Boss' Back in Action Event Yea I thought this Halo 4 logo was going to look a lot cooler. I thought it was a render when I saved it but I guess not... Either way Boss is back! And he's in action! Like real Shoot 'Em Up starring Clive Owen action when he kills those guys with a carrot. Be there on the Summer Solstice at 9AM to play your Halo heart out.

GAMING NEWS: E3 2014 COVERAGE Assassin's Creed: Unity According to Edward Kenway's article, Ubisoft says they are revamping the combat system for the upcoming Assassin's Creed game by removing the 'Counter' ability. Is this absolutely ludicrous or will this make the game more fun? I'll give you a hint it's absolutely ludicrous. Read more about it by visiting his thread and posting your thougts. Destiny Alright so most people know that the Destiny Alpha was released to certain people and I know Church and Delpen have gotten their hands on it but no one's written an article on that so I give you this article by EK about the White PS4 Destiny Bundle Pack to be released on September 9th. Leave your comments on EK's thread. Halo 2: Anniversary Sure this might be part of the Master Chief Collection but check out some amazing screenshots from Halo 2: Anniversary provided by Adam.

NEW LEGENDARY MEMBER It is with great honor that we accept a new member into our Legendary Members Group on the site.

GAMING NEWS 343 Partners With Gallery Books Now I don't know much about Gallery Books or what they've published or who they've published for before but I do know one thing: and that's that I love the Halo novels. They're expertly written and go beyond where the games can take you in the Halo Universe so the fact that 343 has made this deal with Gallery Books and plans to keep publishing Halo novels is nothing short of fantastic.

  11. In Bungie's latest podcast there has been a mention of competitive multiplayer map's "These maps are specifically designed 100 percent from the ground up to be awesome for competitive multiplayer," Competitive multiplayer design lead Lars Bakken said. Despite Bungie showing major elements of sociable gameplay and features it appears Bungie is definitely bringing competitiveness among players to Destiny. We will possibly see a range of competitive game types and maps. Polygon highlighted other parts of the podcast where Tyson Green, Destiny's investment lead says about Destiny bringing in a wide range of players as Destiny hold's a lot of elements from role playing to an action shooter "We are going into an interesting space, where we are a shooter, we are an action game, we are a game that a lot of people out are really familiar with and they love and they spend a lot of time playing and we are trying to bring some additional elements to that." He also says, "The goal is so that you have this game that you come back to and that your friends come back to, and when you're all coming back to the game, and you all feel like you want to keep playing this game. Then you have a social game at that point. You actually have a cooperative experience, a community experience." According to Lars Bakken the skill you use within Destiny will "go beyond thumb stick abilities and quick fingers" you must understand on how you equip yourself and look at the choices you make.

  13. You guys might know them as LiQuid BioniX, SykoWolf, Sarge, and Minuette but they all address each other by Caleb, Matt, Jake, and Mackenzie. Those names are listed respectfully. That means in order. Well in my first collective interview, ladies and gentlemen: The Podcast Crew. DD: "Hello guys, so I've gotta ask you guys just as I've asked the rest of my interviewees: Where do your names originate from?" S: "My name came from Red vs Blue, which I've watched since I was just a wee-lad. Let the record show I am not Matt Hullum (Sarge) please stop messaging me if you can be on the show xD" M: "My name originated from a background character of one of my favorite shows, named Minuette. I also picked it because it was French and it sounded really beautiful and unique to me." LB: "I play semi-professional paintball for a team called Team LiQuid, so I tend to put that prefix in front of all of my names. BioniX just came from nothing ;)" SW: "I created the name after I decided to stop using Razor Sharp, my original user name before i joined the site. My current username originated from the fact that im usually a lone wolf whenever i play Halo and other similar games.The Syko part came from the fact that when im angry i tend to become rather 'psycho" in my play style. It also kinda plays into my outside life, I prefer to work on my own, so that if anything goes wrong I know that It's something that I have done wrong, that being said I can work effectively in teams." DD: "So who came up with the idea of the 343i Podcast originally? I remember when the talks started and I remember I thought it was a good idea but how'd it all come together is what I'm really asking I guess." LB: "I'm gonna have to take credit for starting it I listen to a lot of podcasts, some are comedy but most are about gaming, and I thought that this site could use a little one. I know that I personally love listening to them, so I assumed many people would enjoy one, especially if it was focused on gaming AND this website. Basically, I just posted a topic in the General Discussion about starting a podcast, and the idea really took off. People were (and still are) really excited about it! It's also a blast to do, and all the positive responses we get keep us going with it!" DD: "I love them as I said earlier and I'm guessing this is the crew that supported it most. Do any of you have previous Podcast or VoiceOver experience besides listening?" LB: "I'm gonna let Mackenzie take this one ;)" M: "Aww how nice. I haven't been in previous podcasts but I've done some voice acting for projects before. Most of them were my projects since I don't really audition but I'm starting too, for a short answer. Yes" SW: "I've done a little bit of voice work, mostly on machinimas and such, but no podcasts. I hope to extend out and do some more voice work.I currently help Mackenzie in some of his work and plan on helping him long into the future so long as he continues lol" DD: "That's very cool, machinimas I'm assuming? I'm not entirely sure if you mean those or actual tv shows or a web series haha but still it sounds fun. I think it's a great idea to have members on the Podcast as guests, how do you guys choose your guests?" S: "Well for our choosing process we capture all of our could-be guests. Then, we bring them to a secret room within the depths of the earth. After they all enter the room we line them against a wall. The spiritual aura in the room will take over their bodies causing them to chant words from ancient Skyrim texts and fight to the death. The Podcast Crew examines all of their skills from behind a holographic image of Twam ( .) In the case the two or three contenders are unable to fight each other for the seat with the champions Burnie decides if they are worthy. In the case he deems one of the contenders unworthy he asks them one simple question as he stares deeply in his soul: http://www.youtube.c...?v=A732Cuuo2tI� That is how the official choosing occurs. You might ask yourself, hey that doesn't make sense they (or I) would remember that! My answer to that comment is simply do you really think we wouldn't erase your memory after all of that hmm?" DD: "So then this could mean that I could've been chosen to be a guest and fought other members to the death without realizing? That could explain a lot of missing members.. And black names could indicate that they're dead. So to all of you: What do you like to do most on the site? Besides the Podcast of course." M: "Browse around until I find an appropriate topic to respond too, and the conversations in the shoutbox." LB: "Besides the podcast, I tend to just lurk in the ShoutBox and post on the forums. I used to get all hot-headed when it came to Halo 4, but the forums have really made me slow down and I try to help other, newer members do the same. Every opinion is welcome (it IS a Forum, after all), but cool heads are recommended as well." S: "Browse around until I find an appropriate topic to respond too, and the conversations in the shoutbox. - Couldn't of said it better myself." SW: "I love the site, it's always been one of my favourite places to hang out since I was in school, and im sure I'll be here long into the future. My favourite thing about the site has changed twice. Originally it was the wealth of information and idea's provided by our many members. And currently, it's the members themselves. I love meeting new people and talking to the older members who I met when i first arrived here. This site has produced 3 very important people to me, that most of you know, so I owe alot to our wonderful community :)" DD: "Pretty solid, I think that's what most members do actually. So did you guys partake in the Majestic Map Pack Challenge? If so, what did you think?" S: "I actually do participate in the challenge and I think it's great! The only problem with it is I think I've only found one. :unknw:" LB: "I WANT to participate, but I'm currently in college and without an Xbox. I will soon have it back and will absolutely do other playdates and challenges then, but I don't have the option to currently. I have, however, participated in previous playdates and whatnot." SW: "I originally wasn't going to enter the Majestic Map Pack competition, but I decided I wanted to give it a try. To my surprise I pretty much had it decoded and answered within 2 hours. I believe I was one of the first 2 or 3 people to send in the PM, and while It was a bummer to not win anything I extend many congratulations to those who won,participated and ran the competition, it was a spectacular idea for a competition and I cant wait for the next one..this time though..make it hard ;)" DD: "So the artist behind the logo of your Community Podcast Sig: who is it and where did the idea come from?" LB: "That would be the one and only Insignia I PM'd him one day after the podcast really started to take off and asked him if he could make a little surprise for the crew. The image is there because, well, it's a good image (and minimalist). Insignia did a fantastic job and I love seeing it down there! I know that other people throw those types of things in their signatures (not just on this forum, but on others as well), and I thought it'd be really nice have the crew tag because the guys deserve the credit. Researching, doing, and putting the podcast together takes some time and we are all doing this because we love the forums and love games, and this is a special thing to show it off!" DD: "I shouldn't have expected anyone else. The beautiful artwork is a clear sign of Insignia's work . Now the Podcasts come out to be almost an hour if not more. How many minutes of raw sound clips do you think you have after recording before all the editing and posting occurs?" S: "Burnie might be able to answer it better, but hell I gave it a shot. Before all the editing occurs we usually have about 20 minutes extra material on each podcast which which Liquid or Minuette cut out. They cut this out in order to make it run smoother and family friendly." LB: "Sarge hit the nail right on the head. Sometimes some, say, inappropriate stuff gets said and we need to cut it out because this isn't an explicit podcast. Also, as we near episode number ten, I am going to do a little "behind the scenes" action, just to give people an idea about how WE go about recording and editing the podcast." SW: "Trust me, alot is said behind scene that would make people laugh, but some people tend to swear *cough* Jake *cough* Luckily, whenever we slip up in the actual recording, someone is always there to edit it out." S: "Hey! I only swear when needed, a great example is that Grifball episode I bet y'all had loads of fun editing out half of it because of your foolish remarks and my reactions about everybody's favorite gametype!" M: "I kept something special for the people who watch the whole way through in which I shouldn't have done but I said I would do it." DD: "That's pretty awesome! I hope we hear some of the stuff that got cut out, that could be really funny . You certainly make it sound interesting haha. You guys record the Podcast every Friday, does that ever become inconvient?" SW: "Not usually to be honest. Although sometimes my internet connection can become a little annoying, as you may have noticed lol, but other then that It's alot of fun being involved with the podcast and I dont see myself ever stopping my attendance, until I have to go away for Basic Training for 3 or 4 months." DD: "Ok guys the collective interview has been a fantastic success so I just have one last question for each of you to answer: What's your advice to members who maybe want to make a name for themselves like you guys?" LB: "Always keep talking! You want the podcast to try and flow a little bit or it becomes annoying and awkward. Also, make sure that you prepare ahead of time. The guys were making fun of me for taking notes during the PS4 announcement, but honestly, if you want to have good (and accurate) information, you need to take those notes and have ideas as to what you want to talk about. Also as I've said before, I'm going to do a little "behind the scenes" video that goes over some of the logistics/software that we use to record the podcast so that anyone interested in doing one can do so (for free). Basically, your podcast could have three listeners, but if you treat it and act like it's the best podcast in the world, then those listeners (and you) will be happy with it, and what more could you ask for?" SW: "It's not really that hard. All you need to do is be yourself. Be welcoming and helpful to newer members and just generally do what you can to keep the standards asked for all of our members. If your talented in ANY field, try to lend those talents to the site and the members if possible, Like Insignia has done in the art department, and Azaxx in his little "Protector of the Shoutbox" job lol" S: "My only piece of advice as Sykowolf said just be yourself don't try to be something that your not. That's the worst mistake you can make. Also, be friendly to everyone unless in some bizarre case they deserve your wrath. *looks over at sykowolf*" M: "I wouldn't really have any advice to make it like us, just be yourself and if you see a good opportunity take it, that's possibly all I can say/give you." Ok and that's all folks! I had a great time with the Podcast Crew, everyone please make sure to subscribe and follow all their work. Here's a link to their latest Podcast: Podcast 7.
